Fiddler on the Hoof is a free-for-all Rhythm minigame that appears in Super Mario Party. Its name is based on the title of the musical Fiddler on the Roof.


Players race on horseback down a track. By pulling back the Joy-Con, they pull the reins of their horses, and they must do this to the beat of the music to yield either three points or just one point depending on when they pull the rein. Once the minigame ends, the player with the most points wins.

The perfect score is 168 on Normal difficulty and 189 on Hard difficulty.

On the Challenge Road, this is the sixth challenge of Ghostly Hollow and the 40th challenge overall. Normal difficulty is used, and the goal is 130 points for the normal challenge and 150 points for the Master Challenge.
